Book launch goes without a hitch

About 250 people attended the launch of “Connections,” La Vallee’s history book, on Saturday evening at the Devlin Hall. A wine-and-cheese topped off the evening.
The people involved with the planning deserve a big applause.
Be sure to plan on attending the many other activities to celebrate La Vallee’s centennial in the weeks and months ahead.
